Herodotus has been a long haul*, but we've finally gotten to book nine. Read about the battle of Plataea last night. We're now debating whether to read Thucydides or Ferdowsi. Pablo's pushing for Ferdowsi, and since he's the one doing the reading, I guess that's going to win out.
* Started Herodotus a year ago March as we'd just seen 300 and Pablo'd never read it before. We made a few detours along the way starting with Heliodorus's Ethiopian Story and making our way through the entire Professor Challenger series.
